Granite Ventures has helped early-stage technology companies build solid foundations for success since 1992, when we began investing as the early-stage venture capital group within Hambrecht & Quist. Granite became an independent firm in 1998, but continues to leverage decades of investment and technology experience to benefit and create value for our portfolio companies. We focus our investments on sectors where our partners have deep domain expertise, broad industry knowledge, and significant investment experience.

Granite manages over $1 billion in venture capital and has invested in more than 90 private companies. We partner with promising and successful entrepreneurs to create businesses that have a competitive edge and achieve category leadership.

The Granite team consists of a seasoned group of investors who, together, share more than 150 years of venture and technology industry experience. Our team has invested in early-stage technology companies through multiple economic cycles and brings together complementary skills and experience to the Firm. In addition to extensive early-stage investing experience, the Principals have been successful entrepreneurs, executives, attorneys, research analysts, and investment bankers. This collective experience gives Granite a powerful combination of technology, entrepreneurial, operational, and transactional expertise.
